And the same to you VG. I'd like to add my best wishes to the BH gang. I can only repeat VG's wishes but I would like to add Healthy, prosperous AND SAFE! I'm emphasizing the safe part because I fell off my roof a couple of months ago, landed hard and broke 5 ribs, collapsed a lung and added a few stitches to my forehead, though I have no idea how I cut my face. All's well and I'm back at work. All I can say is I have never been so out of control in my life. It happened way too fast, as soon as i put my feet on the rung, my ladder slipped to the pavement before I could even blink. I followed behind...and landed on my back on top of the ladder from about 9 feet. My wife called 911 and the paramedics showed up it seemed to me, instantly. I was amazed and pleased to see how professionally they handled the situation and me. It's comforting to know We got a lot of good people out there, efficient and very capable in their own field.
Wife is very pissed and has confiscated my ladder. In any case, I now look at my ladder the way a dog looks at a vacuum cleaner. Grrrrr! One more piece of advice, do not ever, ever sneeze with broken ribs!
Best to all,
Wingover ---which incidentally, is exactly the maneuver I executed from my roof :-)

Gee Wing, sorry to hear that! Hope you're mending up well and comfortable. Stay away from those ladders and keep it to a safe sport, like combat flying! Hope you all had good holidays and great New Year.
